  1. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hey guys. I've always been a GM guy and my 3 previous vehicles prior to my 06 Jetta were a Cavalier, a 99 SS Camaro, and my current toy, a H/C/I 98 Z28. I was daily driving the Camaro but a Spec 3 clutch car with 4.10s and a roll cage inside getting 14mpg was not a practical vehicle so I got...

    So I just bought a 2018 RS Hatch 6spd GM Program Car with 4K showing over the weekend. I'd been doing my 120 mile daily (30K/yr) commute in a '00 VW Golf TDI for the last 337,000 miles. But it needed a rebuild and some other work. The $5500 to keep it going did not make sense. I loved that...

    2015 Diesel Cruze, Automatic, 42k miles. I purchased this car Sept 2017 with 32k miles. Since then I've had to have the grill shutter fixed at the stealership ($500) because of a GM warranty block I wasn't made aware of before buying the car. Now it only has 42k miles on it and the SES light...

    Hi everyone, As of now I am finding myself in a bit of a spot I turn in the last of my Tdis next week and will be in the market for another diesel. So far between my 09 and my 11 I've had about 300,000 miles with maybe 2000$ worth of repairs and have absolutely loved everything about their...

    I'm only 300 miles into my CTD. Last car was a Jetta TDI I turned in on the buy back program. One of the first big differences I notice is the 1.6L in the CTD with a 9 speed auto is able to turn about 1800-1850 rpm at 70mph. In the TDI with a 6 speed DSG that'd be 2750rpm. By 80mph it would be...

    Well VW finally approved sales of the new 2015 TDIs that are still on the dealer lots. Their current incentive is 5k off MSRP and 0% financing for well qualified. That is a very disappointing sales incentive, but there seems to be some people going for it.

    I thought you Diesel guys would be interested. Not being a Diesel owner, I can't comment, but the comparison is interesting. Note, this is a Canadian website comparison with measurements and costs. Quick Comparison: Chevrolet Cruze Diesel vs Volkswagen Golf TDI - Autos.ca | Page 4
